    VERY good idea George. Just one thing though, if you fly with the tool box, you can't lock it if you check it. TSA throws a fit, and cuts the lock off. Not sure what they'd do about the hobby knifes and blades. Can't carry that stuff on, so it makes it tough. That's why I HATE to fly, but necessary evil here at work. The Homeland Insecurty Bullsh-- is the reason I don't take modeling projects with me anymore, not too sure what I can and can't take on the plane, but for some reason I ALWAYS end up getting pulled out of line for a "random" (yeah RIGHT! :rolleyes: ) pat down search and my bags rummaged through completely. Nothing like living in the freest country in the world to make you feel more like a terrorist than flying. It's almost as bad as having to take Amtrak. :rolleyes:

    Today I made the pop-out area on which my park scene will be built. I already have accessories for a park. I have a park assortment package that has mailboxes, fire hydrants, trash cans, park benches and a phone booth. I also have a picnic set that has two tables, a covered dining area, a barbeque pit and some steel trash cans. Lastly, I have a selection of playground equipment: A merry-go-round, a slide, see-saw and a swing set. The biggest thing in the park will be a 4-6-2 K4.

    Well, I'm getting used to my camera. Certainly the up side is the clarity of the images..and the downside is the clarity of the images!!!! :) I can see every little flaw and the results of any skimping on time, patience, and quality really standout! This camera is going to motivate a lot of improvements on my layout!

    Anyway, a Penn Central commuter pulls out of the platform at Kings Port while a Kings Port & Western freight approaches.

    I painted the area for the park today and applied the WS blended turf.

    That's a beautiful train Charlie! Nice catch! I was interested in the large window in the rear of the train. I haven't seen one like that before.
